    Default Free Vag Com download

    Hey guys I heard Ross Tech has free downloads available for Ross tech. I was wondering which one I should download for the MKV, there seems to be 8 different downloads. The website says to use your interface but I am not sure which one it is. I plan on buying a cheap cable on ebay and using the download to access the cars computer. The website to the downloads is http://www.ross-tech.com/vcds/download/.

    Also one other quick question what is a MKV pirelli.

    Thanks for the help.

    you gotta find out what cable you are buying first. Different cables have different interfaces, for example there is a Kll-2 interface, something like that. The ebay cables however are hit or miss. I just bought a 4 dollar one coz i had 4 ebay bucks and i want to give it a try. Either way you're gonna have to choose a cable first and see what interface it is. And then you get to download VCDS Lite. You will not get the full features of vag-com although some report to have gotten them all. Either way the bottom line is that it is hit or miss and if you end up getting a cable that works it should be at least able to read and delete codes. Ill let you know how mine goes. You're gonna have to install a bunch of drivers and ish to get it to work also. Only true way to guarantee you get all the features of VAG is to buy a real cable, im about to shell out for it in the summer

    What would you recommend to get. I did a google search and see that some wires come with the software.

    the rosstech cable has a built in key. You can't just download the software and use any cable that fits. The software only works with their cables. I purchased it and I am very happy with my vagcom unit. I keep it always plugged in to an in-dash laptop that i fabricated.

    Nice. Diggin the setup. And the vid of over 140 is legit, just hope no officials see it. BAm ticket. With a double din head unit can you display vag com readouts? I mean what If you picked up a mini tower CPU and mounted it in the glove box... could you use the double din unit as a display?

    thanks! if you purchase a double din unit that is capable of accepting a video feed from a mini tower cpu, you could definitely use vagcom through windows on the mini tower. maybe mount the power switch by the esp button for a nice clean finish. Something like this would work nicely. http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PU...rs/AVH-P6300BT

    I almost feel it'd be more economical to wire in an Asus 7" screen and leave the rest of the room behind the screen open for mounting a mini tower. I could then just run iTunes or WMP on the 7" screen white having the capability to switch to VAG-Com as needed. The future could hold fun projects for this little rocket.

    A gti Pirelli edition was a collaboration between Pirelli and VAG when they made a special edition car that featured revamped interior with Pirelli insignias and stitching. Special tire tread designs. It was also yellow in color and I believe had a little more hp/tq stock then a normal gti.
